Energetic, Patient, Positive.

Swimming has always been more than just a sport or a skill to me. In the past, I was a competitive swimmer as well as a life guard with 4 years of experience. Swimming became a lifestyle. I can’t imagine a life without knowing how to swim and I would like to spread this knowledge and passion to as many people as I can. I believe with my love for swimming and my focus on water safety, kids would really thrive in my lessons in a fun, effective, and safe manner.

Fun, Encouraging, Inspiring.

To teach my students well, I believe that their confidence in me is crucial. Swimming may be a difficult skill to pick up for some, but it can be made easier if my students trust me at every step of their learning journey. Knowing this, I aim to create a fun but firm learning environment to ensure that children look forward to coming for class while also ensuring their safety in the water.

Teacher Zenia, 27

Fun, Passionate, Knowledgeable.

Knowing how to swim is an essential life skill that most of us at one point in life, would want to have because it is not only a survival skill, it is also a common form of exercise and a social activity. Having had 8 years of experience as a competitive swimmer, I’ve gained much insight into the mechanics of every stroke and know the downside of training fatigue, Thus I like to keep lessons fun so that the passion and interest is not lost after each class. I also had prior training in child brain development and I use what I've learnt towards bridging lasting and nurturing bonds with my students.

“My 5yo twin boys used to be afraid of the water. After only 4 lessons under Lynn, they are now much more confident when in the pool.
